I first want to thank Steve Ramsey for the inspiration and design.
This is my first project post. Unfortunately I did not carve the pieces although I would have LOVED to have taken credit for them.
Made from maple and walnut with maple inlay and burgundy flocking in the drawers. It was finished with shellac base coat and clear laquer. It was also my first attempt at a hand-rubbed finish. I learned so many things from this project, one of which is that applying wax over a shiny surface is difficult!. Boxwood and ebony quad-weighted pieces make it a joy to play on.
Thanks for looking and Happy Independence Day!
